Do we want evolution to die? No, but we wouldn’t shed any tears if it did. What we want is for evolution to be treated realistically; that is, it is an hypothesis, not a theory, and you may use hypotheses in the laboratory but you don’t teach them in science classes.
In science, you pursue the hypothesis that is potentially provable; that is, there is the possibility of proving it. Proof consists of something that is experimentally repeatable. The so-called proof of evolution is all of biological history.
Well, now, we have two problems:
- No one has ever witnessed all of biological history; therefore, we don’t have even a single experiment to begin to build a proof.
- If we had a (past-only) time machine and could live billions of years, we could witness all of biological history but we would still only have a single experiment and could not “perform” additional experiments; therefore, we could not establish experimental repeatability and, therefore, could not build a proof.
Now, what evolutionists do in the face of this insurmountable obstacle is, like cheaters often do, to tell a lie. They say:
Well, you see, we are using inductive logic (many instances constitute proof).
The truth is:
Evolutionists use inductive interpretation (many instances inspire an opinion).
